Idle surge

Just changed oil to delo 5w-40. after the first drive I noticed a surge while idling. this was first oil change since buying the truck used. The previous change was done at a quick lube type place with a crap filter and I assume standard 15w-40. I know the vis. Is the same but new oil is synthetic. Would the switch cause the idle surge or a sign of another problem?
